Rabies has been a scourge of mankind since antiquity. The name itself, "rabies" is derived from the ancient Sanskrit rabhas meaning "to do violence" and has been found described in medical writings several thousand years old. The rabies virus is an RNA virus of the family Rhabdoviridae (Greek for "rod-shaped virus"), genus Lyssavirus (Lyssa being the Greek God of frenzy and rage). Rabies infections have a worldwide spread, with only a few, mostly island nations laying claim to being "rabies free."
